Editorial Reviews


A Must Read for Anyone Exposed to Toxic Mold. The Billings should be commended on their extensive research and tireless work on this book. Their contribution to the field of toxic mold poisoning is monumental. This book is very well written and organized and loaded with important information, so it can be referenced time and again as those exposed to toxic mold struggle in their journey back to health --Mary Short Ray, DO, environmental specialist

Mold the War Within, is an excellent, easy to read, eye opening verification of the major public health problem we have in this country with mold and mycotoxin exposure - best illustrated after floods and hurricanes. --Lisa Nagy, MD, Environmental and Integrative Medicine Specialist

One excellent resource is the book Mold: The War Within by Kurt and Lee Ann Billings. The Billings learned the hard way about the damaging health effects of mold and the level of ignorance about mold's effects by the medical profession as a whole --Joseph Mercola, DO

About the Author

Well written and researched, thank you Kurt and Le Ann for sharing your story with us!
I read your book from front to back, and I have to say it was very informative.

It would have been nice if the author had stepped back and taken a broader perspective, weaving her own story into the book. Yes -- the author had some helpful information, but she missed the perspective from a lot of readers. I got frustrated with the author's excessive wordiness, repetition and unnecessary details. The author was too close to the subject matter (mold) and should have had a third party review/edit the book.

First, you don't have to go through a hurricane to get toxic mold exposure. It can happen in any water-damaged home, building or school. And trust me, a lot of schools will go OUT of their way to cover up the problem. This happened with my son. Not everyone knows they have been exposed to toxic mold. It would have been helpful if the author had painted a broader picture of common symptoms from toxic mold -- and then details on the symptoms she and her family experienced. Instead, SOME of these symptoms were buried towards the end of the book (such as skin sores and casual mention of her husband's low lung capacity). Huh?

Second, while there were lengthy details of New Orleans mold testing, there was no advice to the reader about how to test their own house or building. Or what if the building can't be tested (as in an UNWILLING school administration desperate to avoid a lawsuit)? How should a person get tested for mold exposure? This book won't tell you.

Certainly, there is a place for natural, wholistic healthy remedies for mold. I appreciate this part of the book. But again, the author could have given an overview of other treatments available, pros and cons. It is exceedingly difficult (nearly impossible) to find a physician, or even a toxicologist, who is willing to test for mold exposure.

The Billings have done an excellent job of publishing a much-needed "handbook" for the layperson with regards to being exposed to biotoxic molds and other contaminates.
I give a lot of credit to this family for the quick response in addressing health issues that plague most people exposed to mycotoxins for any length of time. A large portion of the population cannot afford or even find the correct environmental physicians to help understand our health conditions relating to mycotoxin exposure.
This book gives hope and sheds light that we are not crazy. We don't need psychiatric drugs. Our bodies are sick, and we know it!
Katrina is bringing a whole new face to biotoxic exposure.
The two weeks exposure shows just how toxic these molds are- and how quickly our physical health can deteriorate.
It is a miracle that these special people pulled together this publication that so many people who need, good, solid, basic, reliable information, AND from the right sources, now have it available to them! And at such a reasonable cost. (I hate to mention what my mold-toxin education and recovery has escalated to!)
I know the book is creditable because I have had a personal working relationship with many of the doctors that contributed to this book. They are all outstanding, in their perspective fields, with years of experience and knowledge of mold toxins.
These doctors have been relaying the same health ramifications to patients for years, only- the public consciousness has not responded to the potential detrimental implications- mainly by the lack of government agencies and our own family physicians lack of knowledge; which is acknowledged in this book.
Can this situation happen you- Definitely!
Is there a way out- Definitely!

This book was given to me by a friend. We have both lost our health & jobs that we loved that were located in different mold infested buildings. We have both gone through the nightmare of finding the right doctors to diagnosis us & get the proper treatments to kill off the toxins inside us. When I started reading this book, I had a hard time putting it down. I would suggest this book to any one who thinks they or someone they care about may have been exposed to mold in their home or work place. Since my life has been turned upside down from this exposure & illness, I have been starved for answers & information. I knew I was not crazy-I knew something was terribly wrong with me & I knew it was from the historical building I leased for 3 years to run my retail business out of. This book is a God-send. I related to so much of what was being said. It has given me hope & understanding. I am going to buy another book to pass on to my primary doctor - she suggested I was suffering from menopause! I am only sorry there are still so many uneducated doctors & government officials who are in a position to help, that are choosing to look the other way. It is very sad that ignorance & greed get in the way of the truth. I applaud the Billings for following through on their quest for helping other people by witting this book.

Mold: The War Within
In reading this book that Lee Ann and Kurt Billings have written, as a mold victim it has given me added strength, along with knowing that people like this care about helping all mold victim's not only through their personal experience, but taking the time to do research, talk with experts, and other mold victim's by sharing the truth's of how devastating the health effects that toxic molds do inflict on people. This is a confirmation, to all from the experts: Mold Can Make You Very Ill. I have been a mold victim for 18 months now, it is a slow death in my opinion, because I am living the nightmare because I have no way out of my toxic mold environment. I have the medical proof of my toxic mold illnesses along with the professional reports of the testing in my apartment that confirm the toxic molds. I highly suggest that not only mold victim's need to read this book, but also medical experts that are not privy to the proof that the experts in this book have and is documented, along with all those non-believers: Purchase this Book. You would not want your child, your mother, your father, any other relative, friend, co-worker, etc to ever experience what us mold victim's are going through with these proven illnesses. I breath with a respirator mask, oxygen, and take many medications because of toxic molds. I never had a breathing problem in my life and would give anything if toxic molds have not taken away my life like they have done. I can't even let my little grand-children, my sons, my family in my apartment. I can't go to family functions, out to dinner, share holidays, and just putting it simple, Toxic Molds kill every aspect of your life.
